I will be waiting.
Well this is tricky. You have somehow stumbled across my blog. A blog that is full of wonder and excite. That will surely thrill you and delight.
And in That Moment I Swear We Were About 100 Feet Above the Arby’s
Okay, you know what I want?
I want an episode of WNTV where Cecil is too sick to do the show, so Carlos has to take over and all he does is talk about Cecil and text Cecil to make sure he’s okay and do sciency shit like send radiowaves to Mars.
Just a Cecil and Kevin doodle. Staring at pictures of themselves that are not quite actually themselves. Or something. Excuse to draw tentacles. I’ll go back to trolls soon.

But as you watch the sun rise again tomorrow morning think to yourself: Past performance is not a predictor of future results. And then force a smile. Drink another cup of coffee. And then try not to look down as you walk across the soil that will eventually fill your lifeless lungs and repurpose your corpse.
"Fey’s station management lets her sing on the air! Why not me?"
"Carlos, meanwhile, says he’s had a busy day and might take a nap now. That…well, that sounds nice…Listeners, I think now is the time at which I must say goodbye. There’s a place here in Night Vale. A place I’d like to be just now. Maybe my lazy day isn’t quite done after all."
Night Vale is really good for practicing character design, right? (I only wish I were better at it!) Like so many other fans, my own mental image of the characters is pretty constantly in flux. This is the Carlos I drew tonight, but tomorrow night, I’m certain he’ll look different. =)
I’ve been re-listening to the entire series, which has made me like Carlos a lot more as a character, rather than just as… a plot device? (Which was my initial impression until One Year Later.) He totally starts out like a reluctant action hero, ready to save the town and “figure out just what is going on around here.” But that pretty quickly fades away into general confusion and bad haircuts. And then, well, it’s no surprise that almost dying shifts his perspective on things. And now he’s so well-adjusted to life in Night Vale and he signs text messages with x’s and o’s and he uses gravity going out as a chance to clean the gutters and he thinks a dog is part of what makes a home and just! Man, no wonder Cecil fell in love instantly. Good call on that one, right?
But anyway, he’s also totally like 10, 15 years away from becoming Doc Brown at this point, right? Like, straight up mad scientist. After all, he’s a scientist who studies science. His hair is already graying. He thinks Erlenmeyer flasks represent perfection. He has a danger meter. That measures in fatality units. His perfect hair has to be a little bit more… science-y at this point, right?
